New Year’s Resolutions for 2009

So, I’m going to try and put together my list of New Year’s Resolutions. I’m going to try and keep them realistic. I am going to try and achieve them slowly over the entire year. I’m also going to list how I plan to accomplish each goal.

1) Fix my financial situation

To regain my financial independence and get out of the all the holes I’ve fallen in, I’m going to work as much as possible. I have an interview on January 6th with the City of St. Louis and STL TV for a Video Production Specialist job. Also, based on the STL TV job and what hours I would be working, I’m going to pursue a job on the Jason Reitman/George Clooney movie coming to St. Louis, as well as all the film projects I can throughout 2009. I will also continue to work several nights a week at a couple nightclubs/bars. That will continue until I have too much other work scheduled. I believe by the end of 2009, I could really have my financial situation, credit score and cash-on-hand status in a MUCH better place.

2) Quit Smoking

As of the stroke of Midnight I stopped smoking. I admit that I had one smoke after I was home for a short while, but none since then. So I’m trying. I’m going to take it one day at a time. I believe that by focusing on going one day at a time and really wanting to quit, I should be able to quit this year. I’ll be honest, I might cave and have one here and there. I am only human, but I’m going to try.

3) Be More Productive

I am going to make a conscious effort to make at least one positive step forward each and every day professionally. Whether it is getting something shot, edited or taking the time to watch a training course, I want to do something, no matter how large or small, each and every day. I will have a few supporting resolutions that can serve to fill this goal.

4) Get in Shape

OK, so I slacked on this one today, but I plan to exercise at least 5 times a week, if not every day. I’m not planning on jumping up and running to the gym, that might come later. I’m planning on simple sit-ups/crunches, jumping jacks and push ups. Also, walking my neighborhood will be a normal part of my exercises. I’m going to build up to running, but that will take a little while. If I take each day, one day at a time, I’ll be able keep my eye on this goal and achieve it.

5) Clean and Organize my House

It is no secret that I am a bit of a pack rat. I need to go through what I own and purge what I don’t need or use anymore. I feel if I go one room at a time, one section at a time, I can make big strides as the year moves on. Then, if I decide to move, either across St. Louis or across the country, I’ll be better prepared, condensed and drag less garbage with me. Plus, I’ll have a better looking house.

OK, for now those are the big resolutions for 2009. Tomorrow I’ll be listing my supporting resolutions and the Leaps of Faith I plan to take this New Year. Please assist me in accomplishing my goals and I’ll do what I can to help you accomplish yours.
